The Great Fire of 1776 – Virtual Program by Green-Wood Cemetery

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Tune in for this program from our colleagues at Green-Wood.

“In his recently published book, The Great New York Fire of 1776: A Lost Story of the American Revolution, Benjamin L. Carp explores that fire and why its origins remained a mystery even after the British investigated it in 1776 and 1783.

Uncovering stories of espionage, terror, and radicalism, Carp paints a vivid picture of the chaos, passions, and unresolved tragedies that define a historical moment we usually associate with “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Join us for a conversation between Professor Carp and Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman about this little-known, but important, event.”
